    He planted some bell peppers and hot peppers, both are taking off. We have another hot pepper, while I opened the orange one and took a nice taste of the juices - :eek: - WTF the little thing is hot! hot! hot!

    What would be good for adding these fire crackers too? Pot of chilli or stew comes to mind. Any thoughts?

    Here is a picture from the internet, same one:

    Dry them, and grind them up, then they will keep, and you can add them to whatever you want.

    Chili would be my best suggestion. Yumm!!

    Chili peppers run whole the whole length of the scoville scale but a rule of thumb is the smaller, the hotter.

    My favorite is poblano - it adds heat n flavor. About a 5-6 on scale 1-10.

    Due to cross pollination of chilies, you don't know what your getting anymore. I remember the days when a Jalapeño was hot for most people.

    Different chilis add different flavor profiles. I've seen some chefs insist on Habaneros for some cultural dishes. (You can destem n seed them to calm them down since most of the heat resides in the seeds & membranes.)

    Milk is the only cure I know of if you get too adventurous...;)

    If you have a bunch and don't know what to do ? I w start experimenting on hot sauce receipes. Some people might know how to dry them like New Mexico chilis.

    Vinegar.
    Pickle some eggs, asparagus, or most any veg.
    Salsas.
    Gellify and fill a donut. It'll make you really popular at the shop.:D
    Double baked potato stuffing.
    Stir fry.
    Chicken salad.
    Battered and deep fried (be sure to cut a slit in them).
    Meat marinades.
    Pizza topping.
    Sushi rolls.
    Huevos Rancheros!
    Stuff large olives. Add to Martinis.
    Infuse alcohol.

    Just a few ideas.

    I make hot sauces or add them to home made salsa. I also use them in any number of stew type dishes.

    Another good use is sauteeing some onion, bell pepper and some hot peppers. All peppers cut into strips without the seed. Some oil in the pan, the onion for about three min., and then add the peppers. Cut the heat down to less then half, toss and throw in some garlic. Damn good.

    If you are making stew or chili, use the peppers early to get the flavor, and late for heat. Long cooking will take the heat out.

    I do like an omelet with some hot pepper tossed in with some mushrooms, onion, and a little garlic.

    Enjoy them.

    I do a lot of peppers this way. I have some crazy hot stuff that we have grown here for a while that I love to use when making chili. A little goes a long way:eek: The mix is a blend of cyan, habanero, jalapenos, and some sweet bananna pepper. Fantastic blend that works well sprinkles on a pizza too. But again..A little goes a long way. It's one of those deals where the next day you are praying for that water to splash up and cool things off :eek::p:eek:

    The wife has some pepper plant that grows these little black things that look like black blueberries that say they are edible but are extremely hot. Supposed to be some ornamental dealie. But the gauntlet has been thrown. I will eat one of these peppers. I have no choice. It said bad things about my Mamma. and only I say bad things about my Mamma :mad:

    i am the same way! i love hot and spicy foods that are flavorful.

    my grandmother many years ago would take hot peppers and tie string around a bunch of them and hang them in her laundry room to dry out. when they were completely dried out, she would grind them up and make a dried seasoning with them.

    My house is good for a quart of sliced jalapeños every two weeks...

    Somewhere between San Marcos and Brownsville I gained a penchant for "hot".
    Travel to VA regularly and ketchup is as spicy as it gets in most eateries there ;)

    Met a coworker in Chicago for a vendor meeting once, he was from India and suggested Indian cuisine...
    Something got a hold of me that took two beers to quell to the point I could vocalize again!!!! That pepper was stupid caustic!

    A lot of spicy ideas. :D

    I have been hitting the hot peppers that were previously pulled, nice reds ones!

    Make a tasty omelet and add to peppers, chopped up. This Thursday is omelet day for the wife in the morning. :D
